The first week, we had a class called School & Society  with our Wheaton College professor, Dr. Jonas. Not only did he push us to write essays at a college level, he expected us to think like that, too. - Melissa

Best of all, the entire program is free of charge for all participants, and completing it guarantees a scholarship to Wheaton College.
